      Days of Praise
      The Incarnate Deity
      December 16, 2009
      "Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought
      it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself
      of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a
      servant, and was made in the likeness of men."
      The entire gospel message runs counter to the
      human mind. The Creator dying for the creation.
      The judge paying the penalty for the guilty.
      The immortal One dying. Sinless God substituting
      for human sinners. No human or devil ever could
      have thought of this scheme, and indeed, no such
       one did. This is evidenced by the works-oriented
      salvation offered by all cults and false religions, as
      conjured up by such sources.
      But make no mistake! The babe in the manger was
       the Creator, holy and eternal! "Who is the image of
       the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature. . . .
       All things were created by him, and for him: . . . that
      in all things he might have the preeminence. For it
       pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
       And, having made peace through the blood of his cross,
      by him to reconcile all things unto himself"
      In order to qualify as a sacrificial substitute, He had to
      be born as a child into humankind, but without the
       inherited sin nature of His human parents. A virgin
      birth was therefore necessary.
      He had to live a sinless life. He had to be fully human,
      but also fully God, so that His substitutionary death
      could apply to the sins of more than one guilty sinner.
      He had to be "God with us," the meaning of the
      precious title Emmanuel (Matthew 1:23), as
       prophesied years before (Isaiah 7:14). JDM
      Christ, by the highest Heav'n adored, Christ, the
      everlasting Lord:
      Late in the time behold Him come, Offspring of a
      virgin's womb.
      Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, Hail th'incarnate
      Pleased as man with men to dwell, Jesus our Emmamuel.
      Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King!"
